Taste of Cape Town 2013: Photos and video
"Delicious" is too mundane a word to describe the 2013 Taste of Cape Town festival. So is "scrumptious". Because this year’s event was simply DIVINE!
Now in its sixth year, Taste of Cape Town was held at the chic Green Point Cricket Club from Thursday April 11 to Sunday 14 April, 2013, with some spectacular upgrades and additions that added to its phenomenal success.
In addition to the usual foodie suspects – which included the Brasserie, Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa's Azure Restaurant, Beefcakes Burger Bar and De Grendel – the 2013 festival boasted an impressive line-up of entertainment, cooking demonstrations at the Pick n Pay Wine and Canapé Experience, and the fill-your-glass-worthy Taste Craft Beer Project, a showcase of more than 18 of South Africa’s best quality craft beers on tap.
When I wasn’t indulging to my heart’s content in über-delicious hot chocolate and other offerings at the decadent Lindt Chocolatier stand, I was feasting my eyes on the entertainment at the Cape Town Angels Benefit Stage. My favourite act was the Rage of Fire and yes, they looked good enough to eat!
The Cape Town Angels project, a non-profit organisation that boosts other social responsibility initiatives and develops community-based projects, is one of the beneficiaries of the proceeds of the Taste of Cape Town festival.
I interviewed Barbara Loots and Charmaine van der Merwe, two of the Cape Town Angels, about the Benefit Stage, the magic of Taste and why they love Cape Town:
